About this property

  • West Lodge is a charming chalet-style detached house, originally built in 1994. It was comprehensively extended and renovated in 2009 by the current owners, and has been the subject on ongoing improvements, creating a stylish, spacious and comfortable family home arranged over two floors.

    The property is beautifully presented and offers over 2,493 sq ft of living space that is well-suited to meet the demands of modern family life. On the ground floor is a sitting room, with an open fireplace and recently fitted bi-fold doors which open to the south facing patio. The adjoining open plan dining room/ kitchen is reached via double internal doors, and also has bi-fold doors to the patio, creating a wonderful space for entertaining and enjoying the gardens. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped with a good range of integrated units and appliances, and is complemented by a separate utility/boot room with access to the rear garden. Lying off the hall is a family room, with a study beyond. A shower room with modern fittings completes the ground floor.

    On the first floor is the principal suite, comprising bedroom, bathroom and south-facing balcony with space for table and chairs. There are four further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

    Outside, the property is approached from the gated private close via a pair of controlled access wrought iron gates which open to the driveway ahead of the house and the double garage. The garaging has electrically operated up and over doors, and a courtesy door to the rear garden.

    West Lodge is bounded on both sides by mature trees and fencing; whilst the rear is post and rail fencing giving a sense of openness and offering great views across the adjoining fields which are designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

    The garden has been landscaped, with two paved patio areas offering space for seating close to the house, raised fruit and vegetable beds, and an open lawn (partially designated as a paddock) which leads to the stables/outbuildings which have power and water connected.

    The grounds extend in all to about 0.6 of an acre.

This property has been beautifully renovated; I really like the bi-fold doors, they offer such a good flow between the reception rooms and the south-facing patio. Perfect for entertaining!
